“[Ramon Sessions] knows it’s only a matter of time that Davis takes over as the starting point guard. That time was close, Coach Byron Scott said after the New Orleans game on Tuesday. Now, that time frame might change because Davis has left the team.” [Bob Finnan]

“When Samardo Samuels was about 11 years old and growing up in Trelawny, Jamaica, he saw his first NBA game on TV. He had no interest in the game.

“Like anything else, time is a funny thing.  I don’t necessarily believe that it heals all wounds.  For example, I still can’t imagine a day where I will want LeBron James’ jersey in the rafters at the Q.  Just the same, time will create a distance.  Until then Cavs fans are inextricably tied to LeBron James and the Miami Heat.  Right now, it is kind of fun.” [Craig Lyndall]
